Don’t expect medals from us, you didn’t invest in us – Ghanaian athletes at 2022 Commonwealth Games to Ghanaians

Ghanaian triple and long jumper Abigail Kwarteng, on behalf of the Ghanaian athletes representing the country at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, UK has asked Ghanaians not to expect anything from them.

Without mincing words, she said the country has done little to harness their potentials and put them on a pedestal where they can compete with the best from other parts of the world.

For this reason, Abigail said Ghanaians should lower their expectations and never expect them to do magic at the ongoing games.

She revealed to Starr FM in an interview how she used her own funds to train and even borrowed some logistics from other competitors.

“You don’t expect from where you don’t invest. If everything was good and I was able to continue how my training was good. If I had enough time to rest and enough time to be in practice I could easily stand and tell you that I’m very confident that things are going to be great. However, I have to work 12 hours a day and spend just about 3 to 4 hours practising,” she told Betty Yawson of GHOne TV.

“I’m going to go out there and do my best. My coach is really trying and that is why I say I can see what is going to happen. It is not even just with me but I think Ghanaians shouldn’t expect much from anybody you didn’t invest in, however, we are going to go out there and do whatever we could because we love the sport and that is what we are here for and give our 100 percent. And, the prayer is that our 100 percent is enough, she added.”
